Pokémon Go will have a Battle League PvP thanks to an update that will be presented in 2020.
Pokémon Go’s current PvP mode has no support for in-game tournaments or tables, something that has forced fans to create their own, but Niantic will rectify that in early 2020.
Silph Road currently uses web pages where you can manually enter your team data and although this is acceptable, it is separate from the game itself.
This will allow you to create tournaments with in-game rewards of Niantic’s own responsibility and you will also be able to check your score among the millions of players worldwide.
To participate, you have to walk to the tournaments:
“As with many Pokémon Go features, Battle League will encourage players to go out and explore the world with Pokémon,” says Niantic on its blog. “Coaches will be able to walk into the GO Battle League and then face opponents from all over the world through the online clash system and climb the league rankings.
“We hope this feature will make the Pokémon GO combat experience more competitive and accessible to more Trainers.”
It looks like Pokemon GO’s PvP mode will finally get Niantic’s due attention.
